Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a police and education early information sharing partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support for children and young people experiencing domestic abuse. Information is shared by the police with a school’s trained Key Adult (DSL) prior to the start of the next school day after officers have attended a domestic abuse incident thus enabling appropriate support to be given, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child

For more information, visit the Operation Encompass website.

If you have concerns that a child or young person is being abused or neglected, or that they may be at risk of harm, you should contact one of the following services.
